Two rural caravans with stunning views near Bridport. Sleep 4 & 5. Great Pub just down the lane! Tues/Fri arrivals.

Stay in special rural caravans in the beautiful Marshwood Vale of West Dorset. There is a vintage 1959 Bluebird restored to its former glory in the style of the era with the addition of central heating and a modern wetroom only a step away. Atlas is a 2 bedroom caravan - comfortable, modern and well equipped. Although they offer complete privacy from each other both can be rented together to sleep a group of up to 9.

This peaceful location is 8 miles from the market town of Bridport and 7 miles from the sea and Jurassic Coast at Charmouth. Set on a 35 acre farm which has hay to fuel the biomass burner which provides heating and hot water. With little light or noise polution there are ideal conditions for stargazing, glorious sunsets and walking, watching for wildlife and enjoying the birdsong.

Bluebird, a Sun Regent vintage caravan, sleeps 2 adults and 2 children and has a private woodland terrace garden with views to the West. Many of her original features remain including Bakelite light fittings and the original kitchen and linoleum floor. The table is removable to create 2 single beds for children in the lounge area. A rare feature is the comfortable fold-away bed (6x4') which can be stored during the day.

Atlas has stylish decor and can sleep up to 5 people. There is a double bed, 1 bunk room and an additional person can sleep in the sitting room. There is a gate leading out to Purcombe Hill from the enclosed garden where you are free to run, play, fly a kite or sit on the bench on the top of the hill to enjoy the views.

Both caravans have comfy recliner chairs and a barbeque/firebowl for cooking in the open air. All linen, towels, gas and electricity included.

Prices for Bluebird start at £75 a night. For Atlas the nightly rates start at £80. Dogs welcome for a small fee. Changeover days are Tuesday and Friday. In summer arrivals are on a Friday with 7 night stays only.
